Busy week ahead with the start of school which also means the beginning of a new ministry year. We have a BBQ at our house this weekend to go over the next year's direction for the Youth Group. My husband hate the word vision so we are using 'direction'. I keep telling him "without direction the people perish" Proverbs 29:18 but I don't think he is comfortable being the one giving direction. I myself like direction.
I love the security it gives. I like knowing what is expected of me. What I am accountable for. I am not sure if it is the perfectionist in me or maybe the people pleaser that doesn't want to let someone down. I have been reading Martha Peace's book Attitudes of a Transformed Heart lately and it has been good to remember what God asks of me. What He requires of me. Attitudes and actions that are not optional when I feel like it or want to do it. I am so grateful for a God that tells me what is expected and gently guides me back where I need to be. Something about being reprimanded by the Lord brings me comfort and encourages me to be more than I am.
Have a great day!
